NEW YORK WILD BEE PROJECT & EXHIBITS
This website's Wild Bee Guide and its attendant opening photography exhibit were generously supported by the New York State Environmental Protection Fund. Susan Antenen, Director of Rockefeller State Park Preserve of New York, commissioned the project. Photographs and guide text are by Paula Sharp and Ross Eatman. An exhibit of their work, titled Wild Bees of New York, is now on a national tour.
